Are you at the International Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas? Make sure you stop by the TI Village (#N115-N118) for a first-hand experience of our numerous demos. Learn how we have created the world's lowest power capacitive touch solution, and how we are using energy harvesting to change the way you energize sensor networks from ambient power sources.
Not able to make it to Las Vegas? Here is a quick synopsis of the MSP demos being shown:
MSP430™ MCU with CapTIvate™ technology
MSP MCUs with CapTIvate technology are the world's lowest-power capacitive touch microcontroller, and the most noise immune. These FRAM-based MCUs are glove friendly, can reject moisture and offer support for metal touch.
Energy Harvesting Watering System Utilizing MSP430FR5949, bq25570 and DRV8838
Automated systems are becoming common. Providing line-power to thousands of sensors in these systems can be challenging, to say the least. One solution is to use energy harvesting to energize sensor networks from ambient power sources.
